Verdict

Flyjack is improving with each run and was suited by dropping back in trip at Tipperary while Oscillate showed very good speed behind African Cat at Dundalk and will have benefited from the experience. Capulet Monteque is the definite form pick despite failing in two much better events but this could go to AIRSPACE, who improved with each run last season and was only just touched off over 6f at Dundalk on his reappearance.
